As the Strategist for the Portfolio for Native Americans at NIH, Ashley participates in the review of policies, practices, and procedures in order to help eliminate discrimination against Native American employees at NIH. In addition, she analyzes information and data, and present recommendations to improve all aspects of employment as they relate to my targeted group.

Ashley graduated summa cum laude from the University of San Francisco (USF) in California, where she received a Master’s degree in Organization and Leadership Studies. She chose USF for her graduate studies because its mission of Social Justice is one that applies to her daily life. Each day she strives to serve the community and work towards equality for all human beings. Outside of work Ashley enjoys spending quality time with her lovely daughter, visiting art exhibitions, and discovering the world’s incredible cultural diversity through travel.
